Have you ever wanted a zoom near the central hump of the Milky Way in the Sagittarius constellation where stars are born? NASA has almost made it possible thanks to the terrestrial Hubble Space Telescopes. As a kind of 28th Hubble birthday gift for all of us, the Space Agency has released amazing videos and pictures of what is called the Lagoon Balance.
The main video takes viewers far from entering the heart of the massive, colorful nebula, what NASA calls a "raucous star nursery full of birth and destruction", 4000 light years away from the earth.
On the lagoon Nebula, the heart is a massive "young" star (the million-year Hershel 36), 200,000 times lighter and eight times warmer than the sun's earth. It stretches in the region with ultraviolet radiation and winds crevice an exploding, rolling "fantasy landscape of ridges, caves and mountains of gas and dust", NASA sprayes.
The space agency has also released a video that resolves an infrared version that cuts through gas and dust to reveal a multitude of stars:
This is a pictured three-dimensional flight over the core of the lagoon bale using Hubble images :
Hubble was launched on April 24, 1990 aboard spacecraft Discovery, and was a joint project by NASA and the European Space Agency. Once a year, the telescope takes a break from its assigned observations to take a detailed picture of a certain place in the cosmos.
Hubble has offered a new image of the universe and has exceeded all expectations for a remarkable 28 years, "said NASA and ESA. The telescope has "revolutionized almost all areas of observation astronomy".
